With the current dollar drought in the country, getting your hands on some dollars is a big blessing no matter how you acquire it, and that is exactly what happened at South Sudan Woman Empowerment Network’s (SSWEN) office last week where musician and former SSTV news anchor Paleki Mathew is the Executive Director.

A huge amount of dollars amounting to not less than 40,000 USD mysteriously went missing from the office of SSWEN safe box.

The Safe box was locked and and the only people to the key are Paleki and Mary Juan, the finance officer, a source disclosed to Hot in Juba.

SSWEN is a national NGO formed in 2005 by the Western Bhar Ghazel minister of finance, Lilian Riziq to empower the women in South Sudan. Its funded by USAID.
